The life and tragedy of a young girl in poverty-stricken Danish country side in 1800th (I guess) century. A most touching and tragic black/white movie of timeless quality.
This is an most excellent movie about human destinies (and tragedies!) in old Europe when poor people were still poor people, centering on the life of Ditte, a young Danish girl in the countryside. Watching this movie is a heart-wrenching experience, and it is only too clear why this movie is conventionally observed to be one of the greats in international movie history, despite the "unpopular" black/white format. This is a remarkable and realistic view on life and European (read:white western) common history, the history of the poor people in the European country side, made while it was still remembered! This is an experience that will make you grow as a person. This is a must see film!
